LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva turned the animals over to Reversed Rescue in Leona Valley.
According to the rescue: “The five pups are around 6-7 weeks old, they appear to be pit bull / mastiff mixes. with four males and one female. The mother pup is a pit bull and is only about one year old. The two males are around a year old. The black pit / lab mix is in good health. The other male who appears to be a pit / basset hound mix needs some work but is fine. His ears seemed cut off with scissors and finished in a very horrible way. The cat comes around and warms up. She is currently eating well and doing well. All animals had their first visit to the vet for a health check-up and next all vaccinations, then castration and neutering are carried out. We’re looking at a good amount of vet bills and lots of mouths to feed. So if you can support us, we really appreciate it! “
